Colleen C. - Seeking Work in Baltimore

17.14 / hour

I have had a love of children for as long as I can remember. I always helped to take care of younger family members growing up and when I was seventeen I obtained a position at a local daycare center where I worked as both an assistant and an infant/toddler teacher for over three years. For the 2009-2010 school year I was a nanny to three very active little boys, a one-year old and two three-year olds. I have also been a nanny and/or babysat for multiple other families. Beginning in July of 2010 I obtained a position as an infant/toddler teacher at Wonder Friends Inc. in Towson, Maryland where I worked until February 2011. While working at xx I received a job offer from xx daycare where I worked from March 2011 – September 2012. In September of 2012 I chose to leave the field of childcare in an attempt to pursue other career opportunities and I obtained a position at xx. I learned quite a bit in those six months working in an office in the medical field; but during that time it became even clearer to me that my true passion is childcare! Between April and September 2013 I worked as a nanny for a fantastic family with one awesome little boy; but unfortunately the family relocated to Texas. Currently, The Goddard School Inc in Baltimore, Maryland employs me.

I am a 27-year-old young woman with a love of kids of all shapes and sizes and a serious passion for learning everything there is to know. I started care-giving when my favorite T-shirt still had a cat on it (in other words, young). I learned how to take care of others over the course of 8 years in which time I helped to care for my mother who had been cognitively and physically disabled from brain cancer. Obviously this was a distinctly different kind of care than most child care but regardless of who one is taking care of, the necessary characteristics are constant; compassion, patience, problem-solving, and a good sense of humor. These were not just optional virtues, they were a lifestyle for my family. I still abide by that lifestyle. In terms of child care, I started babysitting for all the neighborhood families when I was 13 and consistently until I graduated High School. In addition, I operated as a nanny for two children, a 9-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy (I had been their occasional babysitter for over 5 years as well) over their summer vacation in 2008. As an adult, in March 2012, I was the part-time nanny to three amazing young girls (twins who just turned 12 and their 16 year old sister who is a high-functioning epileptic). I am happy to say the girls and I are very close to this day; we truly enjoy our time together. I also spent a year (august 2012-august 2013)as the part-time nanny to a low-functioning and non-verbal Autistic 14 year-old girl. I remain very close with the teen as well as her mother. I retained incredibly valuable skills from that experience. From August 2014 to November 2016 I was a live-in nanny for two girls (aged 10 and 14) who both struggled with unique behavioral, social, and mental issues. The girls made great strides in my time with them and continue to do so. If being a nanny has taught me anything it is to be flexible, kind, and non-judgmental with kids as with life. All in all, I love caring for others. I don't remember a time when caring for someone else was not a part of my daily life.

I am now a kindergarten teacher, but, as for most girls, I spent nearly every weekend of middle and high school babysitting for someone! When I went to college, I stayed involved in childcare by working in a daycare center. I worked mostly with children ages 2 months to two years, but occasionally up through school aged. I have a lot of experience with early childhood, including basic knowledge of American Sign Language (ASL). In addition to many years of babysitting and daycare, I spent two summers nannying for my cousin's two girls, one summer as a nanny for two other girls, and two months of last summer with my 3-year-old niece, 15-month-old nephew, and newborn niece while my sister-in-law recovered from surgery. We spent the summers touring every kid-friendly events in Baltimore and Philadelphia, hanging out at the pool, making crafts, selling lemonade, and keeping the older kids' reading and math skills sharp! I've had a great experience every summer and am looking forward to making more wonderful summertime memories!

Taking care of kids has always been a part of my life. Whether it was my cousins - which I have a lot of seeing that I have 12 aunts and uncles- or being the go-to neighborhood sitter. I absolutely love being a sitter and have been lucky enough to experience the joys of being a nanny. A little about my past childcare experience: Being the go-to neighborhood sitter was my first experience and they were great. Although I look back and realize I was only a few years older than most of the "kids" I took care of:) I became very close to one particular family who I would sit for on a weekly basis. I now call their three beautiful children my god kids. While in College I nannied for a wonder family, the Francks. I had the pleasure of taking care of their wonderful little boy, Lucas. I was lucky enough to be introduced to Lucas life when he was just 6 months old and cared for him until he turned three. If it was up to me, Lucas and I would still be playing around but the Francks had to make a move due to their job. I have two beautiful nieces that I have taken care for both short and long term stays during times of military deployment their mother had to take. The past five months I have spent taking care of my nieces as their mother once again had to deployed. i may be biased but they are pretty amazing little girls. The eldest is 7 and the youngest is 5. We spend lots of time reading, most recently the eldest has become obsessed with wild life so we spend many afternoons in the library nose deep in books and writing stories about her favorite animals.

I have worked with a lot of families. Some I knew and some I met through people. All were very welcoming and loving and both parties respected what needed to be done to have a healthy loving environment for the children. I still talk with all of the families I worked with because I feel having a great relationship with the parents is just as important as having a loving and trusting relationship with the children.It's very important to me to have a trusting fun loving,knowledgeable relationship with the children. I have a sunny attitude and am always willing to stay open minded with each family.

I started mothers helping when I was 12 and 13 with neighbors and moved on to full time babysitting by the time I was 14. I've there for baby's first day home for 4 separate children and have been around since before their birth for six since I've started caring for families. The families I take care of currently do not need me regularly and I can not afford to only babysit infrequently. I enjoy larger families but like the connection of smaller families as well. I come from a six child family with one parent and I am very responsible, reliable, and understand that I will be becoming a part of the family, not just an employee. Nannying is not just a job, it is an entire life.
